Bootstrap resampling methods have emerged as powerful tools for constructing inferential procedures in modern statistical data analysis. Although these methods depend on the availability of fast, inexpensive computing, they offer the potential for highly accurate methods of inference. Moreover, they can even eliminate the need to impose a convenient statistical model that does not have a strong scientific basis. In this article, we review some bootstrap methods, emphasizing applications through illustrations with some real data. Special attention is given to regression, problems with dependent data, and choosing tuning parameters for optimal performance. © 1992 American statistical association and the American society for quality control.
